Dining hall and belfry

The Hut or Men’s dining hall and kitchen contains the bread oven, a wood-fired stove, a large dining room and sundry rooms.

The wood-fired bread oven is still fully functioning today.

Originally cooking was done in cast iron pots and cauldrons over the open fire at the end of the dining room.

The adjacent belfry houses a bell used to summon the work hands to meals. The bell is still intact and working well!
